Do i need a new power supply? Specs in post

Hello everyone. My system consists of these specs.

OS: Windows 7

Motherboard: ASUSTek Computer INC. CM5571
Chipset - Intel P45/P43/G45/G43
Southbridge: Intel 82801JR (ICH10R)
LPCIO: Winbond W83627DHG-P

Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70GHz

Video Card: 512 MB NVIDIA GT240 video card


PSU: 400W DYNEX Model DX-400WPS 110/220v~, 60/50Hz, 10/5A

Is this a power supply issue or a processor issue or something else? I'm kind of at a loss on this issue. Most newer games will run, but at very low graphics & some have very low fps on even that low of settings. Any suggetsions would be appreciated. Thank you.

  1. Hello 313rodmane :hello:

    I hate to break it to you but your system is outdated :( . Just look at the minimum system requirements for a newer game take Dishonored for instance here are the system specs, or Farcry 3 here are the minimum specs for it. If I was you, if you want to continue to play new games, if you can afford it, you need to build a new system. Sorry to break it to ya.

    Just my 2 cents do with it what you will.
